No...but its no easy feat, especially since thats assuming the Devils go .500 the rest of the way. if the Devils maintain their current pace the Bolts would have to go 29-7-1...not impossible, but really damn close to it.

I just dont see any way the Bolts beat the Devils out of a playoff spot. they need to be shooting for the 7th or 8th seed...anything above that is bordering on impossible, particularly for a team with mediocre to putrid defensive and goaltending.
14 points is not much at all when there's half a season left. I just think the devils will suffer a major collapse, and I think tampa will find a way to grab the 7/8 spot.
